Got a lot on the news out here bout the Baylor scandal. IMO not a single member of Art Briles staff should ever be allowed within 1,000,000 yds of college football ever again.

Terrance Sullivan

Soup I don't why you are jumping down my back but WTH ever. Anyways I don't have a issue with Richt's decision the defensive staff stays the same. I give it a 8. Only time will tell if it's a success or failure. Either it works and Richt will be proven correct by sticking with the defensive staff or it fails and he will get fired. Any more questions?

IraqiCane

Um... no, no and Zero.

SOUP

Terrance...stop all the nonsense about the other nonsense. Tell us in plain and simple words:

1. What is your opinion is about these coaching "changes"?

2. Would you have done the same if you were Richt?

3. How confident are you on a scale of 1-10 that we will be BETTER because Diaz left and these two other coaches were promoted?

WWIN

Did he break the law? Are we above the law?

WWIN

Don't get it... LMAO

College football is a BIG BUSINESS! No proof... good coach... hire em!

Saban is hiring Durkin... let's keep status quo and stay at the bottom... long as we're considered the good guys right?

Terrance Sullivan

When you excuse.

And once again...There IT is right there.

I am VERY PROUD of U!

BigWindyCane

Saban hired DJ Durkin to help his coaches prepare for the CF Playoffs, so any potential coaching hire is possible in college football.

Briles is probably not the OC that CMR would hire, but FSU just got a lot better by hiring Briles. The Canes also need to improve on offense, and they need to improve a bunch. Small tweaks aren’t enough

SOUP

Calling a fade to short azz 5'9 Harley on one play, then calling a bubble screen to 6'4 slow azz Langham on another. Is just 1 of the many reasons the slander of Richt is righteously warranted...

Posted by: CoCane | December 15, 2018 at 04:44 PM

Just another example of "experienced" coaching?

Either you get it or you don't. It's just that simple. I guess people on Penn State staff didn't know about Child Molestation either.

What proof do you have that Kendall Briles did anything wrong??? Everything else is just assuming

AeroCane

In Corp America the shareholders vote the bod in and the bod hires the executive team.
Why isn’t college football more like this: let the alumni vote in the ‘football’ bot and then the bot hires the ad and coach.
Just a thought based on above posts

solarcane

Amen Sully

Terrance Sullivan

SolarCane some people unfortunately don't have much dignity or care for certain things and will justify anything to get what they want. Let's be honest UM wouldn't allow Richt or any Coach to hire Kendall Briles and I don't blame them. There are other offensive gurus with less baggage from which can be hired. Kendall Briles got more Baggage than Pamela Anderson lol.

mi@mic@ne

Evidently according to how Richt reasons the 4 star defensive recruit is much better than the 4 star offensive recruit. So unless we recruit 5 star offensive players then our o corch wont be successful...

TonyCane

Solar, you never know. Manny could be coaching for us again, after a one year “sabbatical”

solarcane

Ok,
I just hope we have an offense that
Can score 6 to 7 TDs a game, hold high scoring teams to 21 points a game, stay off probation and live happily ever after.

WWIN

Recruits aren't always truthful... according to a recruit a couple of years ago all Richt does is negative recruit

solarcane

So we open against Temple in 2020, I wonder which team Manny will be coaching?

solarcane


Briles' son wasn't the head coach... and who knows his involvement of what took place?

Posted by: WWIN | December 15, 2018 at 07:29 PM

That is a fair statement, no one should be presumed guilty without proof.

52 reported incidents of of rape and gang rape by a football team while you are on the staff I believe would be reason enough to scrutinize your next job application though.

K Briles was quoted by one of his recruits as saying

"You like white women? We have a lot of white women at Baylor"

That's not against the law, but it isn't, " Hey Check out our indoor facilities either.

I just wonder how important
a conference title is now when women are receiving the dignity and respect they have long deserved, compared to how things were in the 60s 70s 80s ?

I hope we are better men than the guys that came before us.

THAT is the problem... That is ALWAYS the problem.
The fans have NO POWER.
We are at the mercy of whatever coach the BOT and AD have chosen to run the show. They could care LESS about the fans. The stadium would have to be virtually EMPTY before the fans opinions are considered...

I'm out for awhile...
Just hope we can win vs. Wisky!

Briles had too much sexual assault baggage to be on Richts staff that was never going to happen

Posted by: solarcane | December 15, 2018 at 02:30 PM

I'm surprised he is on anyone's staff.

TonyCane

dont you think it is easier for Kuligowski to recruit this year than at the U? Why..because they tide wins games and dominates.

Posted by: mi@mic@ne | December 15, 2018 at 10:17 AM

Anyone who is a member of Alabama's staff is going to have an easier time recruiting for the Crimson Tide than for the U. It's Alabama. They're like a team with 46 first round draft choices, and have become so powerful that they're guaranteed to win this year national championship, as well as the next. 20% of each graduating class goes in the first round of the draft, if not more. If Saban stays, they'll win probably eight of the next national championships.

2008: 12-2, lost SEC Championship
2009: 14-0, won National Championship
2010: 10-3
2011: 12-1, won National Championship
2012: 13-1, won National Championship
2013: 12-2
2014: 12-2, lost in NC Semi-Finals
2015: 14-1, won National Championship
2016: 14-1, lost in NC Finals
2017: 13-1, won National Championship
2018: 13-0

No school...I repeat no school can really compete against that.

mi@mic@ne

The only reason that I am at this point in my complaining is that we lost to teams that we clearly were better...if we were getting better and lost to teams that were clearly better then i would give the o coach some slack. but its a bad sign that we lost in this way...not promising.

mi@mic@ne

Bear Bryant...450 thousand...top salary

mi@mic@ne

Miami's Howard Schnellenberger, $150,000;

mi@mic@ne

I remember the day when coaches...coached their asses off for 100 thousand a year...and we actually owned college football...getting just like the nfl..they think they are really important...only thing in this game that is important is winning period

Go Canes!!

Friday "ONE DAY LATER" December 14, 2018

PMR hires Banda and Patke as Co-DC's


One can't make this stuff up!

🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

mi@mic@ne

Questioning a coach who makes 4 million dollars a year to put the canes in the top ten is not unjustified. Im sure that what we say is as threatening as taking money out of his salary like us buying a product that he produce that does not work. Fans have no power to make the team win or lose ..that belongs squarely on the coaches.

AeroCane

Windy - defense
With richt as OC and recruiting for offense, I’m not sure we don’t play defense the entire game and hope for TO’s for scores! LOL

Sarasota 'cane

LOL!!

Sarasota 'cane

Point is well taken though... keeping it on the cheap is NOT the way to get the BEST.

We need an OC, CMR!

Posted by: roachcane77 | December 15, 2018 at 04:30 PM

BigWindyCane

LB Sam Brooks is back! Glad to hear it. Brooks is a playmaker that this Canes defense is built on. A few more key recruits are still out there. If these recruits commit, the future on defense looks VERY VERY bright.

CoCane

Calling a fade to short azz 5'9 Harley on one play, then calling a bubble screen to 6'4 slow azz Langham on another. Is just 1 of the many reasons the slander of Richt is righteously warranted...

AeroCane

Afri - totally disagree
But don’t listen to the majority on here - ASK ANY GA fan and they will tell you hen’aint got it and they should of fired his terrible ass years before they actually did’
PS he got us further than any coach in the past has gotten us. Lol
You’re now saying he’s better than Randy Shannon and Al Golden. Gimme a break

roachcane77

You young bucks! We BUILT our own skateboards with scrap wood and STEEL wheels from broken super skates. (Hit even the tiniest pebble and it would screech to an immediate stop.) Skateboards with clay wheels were for only the rich kids... SMH... LOL.

Point is well taken though... keeping it on the cheap is NOT the way to get the BEST.

We need an OC, CMR!

Sarasota 'cane

This "move" is like my Dad (RIP) buying me and my brother wooden skateboards with clay wheels while the other kids were riding G&S "kicktails" with Bennett trucks and sealed bearing Road Rider wheels.

It's THAT serious folks, don't let anyone try to sugarcoat it. It doesn't get better...

AfriCane

The slander on Richt coming from some of u is unwarranted. He doesn’t deserve it. And honestly, I support him for been corky and not giving a shit about what u r all saying.

Sarasota 'cane

This "move" is like my Mom making me and my brother wear Toughskin Jean's from Sears with iron-on patches on the worn out knees while my friends were all wearing Levi's with the orange stitching and red tag.

It's THAT serious folks, don't try to sugar coat this, I've lived it, it never gets better...

AfriCane

U all make me laugh! I know u nancies have strong football knowledge, but there’s no way I support giving up on a coach that’s have gotten us further than any other since 2002. I think the DCs r a brilliant move. Banda has been with Diaz far back. He knows his mentality and play calling. He’s got tons of energy and the young kids love him.
As for the offense, the only common thing that has prevented us from having a strong offense for all these years has been a QB! When we get good play from QB, we will turn the proverbial champioship O corner.

His Majesty The Dude on High

Pleading poverty for Miami is hysterical. Im not asking them to spend Bama money, and they dont have to, just build a staff with qualified people and a quality scheme that takes advantage of the local specialty, speed. Dan Mullen would have been a great hire.

NativeCane

In other news, down 35-7 in the first half the North Texas "Mean Green" put in their 3rd string QB named "Bean".

solarcane

Aero
With Richt screwing us every chance he gets its a different kind of abuse

AeroCane

Solar - agree but that wasn’t really my point

orange 'n green in the vein

Defense is only slightly above average going into the post season this year yet again at a yard per point average of 14.8, nobody on staff deserves a promotion.

Plenty of empty seats available next year Hurricane fans for home games, no need to rush.

solarcane

Briles had too much sexual assault baggage to be on Richts staff that was never going to happen

Go Canes!!

Proud of the way this kid owned up to his actions, will be a good one for us.

AeroCane

So with the extra coach opening - does the idiot hire a OC?
If yes - who?
Briles? Oh wait, the noles already got better and hired him

AeroCane

As I said - richt will Find a way to lose 4 or 5 this next year and be gone!
This next season is going to be miserable - I hate to say it but true! But the light at the end of the tunnel is hopefully we fire richt! And kick him on his way out!

BigWindyCane

Looks like Briles will be FSU's OC. At least their head coach gets it.

Posted by: Herbieibis | December 15, 2018 at 11:20 AM

Not good! One major opponent on the Canes schedule just got a whole lot better

Herbieibis

Looks like Briles will be FSU's OC. At least their head coach gets it.

mi@mic@ne

When we had close games back in the day we never dropped the ball..that one catch gave us the win...Portis on the screen, Ervin on the fly against fswho, olsen on the post...all passing that won games... we dont win now because our passing game sucs

mi@mic@ne

The passing game is not even close to the U tradition...and the fly was our bread and butter...we have receivers running down field who were wide open and we could not make a connection....we were never like this.

mi@mic@ne

or the qb missed the receiver

mi@mic@ne

We must have dropped two fly patterns each game in our four losses....those small things make the difference between winners and losers...if this is not corrected then Richt will be gone

mi@mic@ne

I saw Richt play the same players after we lost our first acc game...I had no reason to believe that he cared about losing....Our other coaches back in the day would have gone through the roster to find someone who would make plays,...our qb would have never seen the field ...the qb is like 70 percent of the offense...if he is not successful it spreads to the entire offense..the corch stuck with a leader who could not be depended upon.

Herbieibis

I don't know whose strength they could possibly be playing to with that offense. 2 runs inside the tackles then a 3 yd pass on third and 7.

BigWindyCane

I think the defense played the best players, and replaced those who weren’t performing. The defense also designed a scheme, including the new striker position, that played to the strengths of the personnel on the roster.

The offense was the complete opposite. The offense played the coaches’ favorites, and didn’t replace those who weren’t performing. The offense didn’t change to play to the Canes strengths of the personnel on the roster.

WWIN

Agreed WWIN. Everyone (fans of other schools) thinks people are out panhandling for money at UM and that the weightroom has picnic benches. IMO the school likes it that way so they can continue to send emails asking for more money. As a private school they are not required to divulge $$$.

Posted by: CGNC | December 15, 2018 at 10:01 AM

BINGO!!!

I don't blame UM for running business this way... I would too if I was them lol!

mi@mic@ne

I also remember Jimmy J stating publicly when recruiting season came around he would say that he was going out to find players who could replace the last years players..lol the guys could never take their jobs for granted

BigWindyCane

Hopefully, Patke and Banda will help us keep some recruits. I guess we will see what kind of play-callers they are, but I really like my LOF Simpson. I think he is a coaching star and as good as coach Kul, if not better.

There is another coaching spot that’s open, so let’s hope he fills it with an OC

WWIN

Keep talking down at us. You always know more than we do.

Posted by: Go Canes!! | December 15, 2018 at 02:20 AM

"WE"??? LMAO

NOBODY agrees with YOU... I know more than YOU do... I talk down at YOU... not "US"!

How many people do you find yourself trying to correct a day for saying you spin things? At least 3 people told you that YESTERDAY... and you still don't get it! 🤣🤣🤣

mi@mic@ne

As I recall when Jimmy J was coach the d line players had to do a certain technique to get penetration in the back field...if they did not show in practice that they were able to be successful in using that technique they could not get on the field.

CGNC

VA I think we are stuck with him through the 2019 season - at least that is what that a member of the BOT said in the Barry Jackson article a while ago.....

mi@mic@ne

The way you get these guys to play at another level is if they start losing you replace them....and then you give them part time play..but we did not develop our young guys..who were 4 star guys...when a player feels like he can be replaced he will be motivated...

mi@mic@ne

dont you think it is easier for Kuligowski to recruit this year than at the U? Why..because they tide wins games and dominates.

mi@mic@ne

Winning makes coaches great recruiters...its very simple...the d coaches want to be a head coach one day then start winning.

mi@mic@ne

Manny did not have an impressive record when he came to coach. And it took him a few seasons to have a dominating defense. The problem is that if we had won 10 games this year we could have cruited some serious alpha dogs. This is why I was so upset when Richt brought in the qb who could not hit the broad side of a barn door. The corch took too long getting the young receivers and backs ready to play from day one.So now we have taken a step back because of the corches terrible decisions. I like Simpsons record.. he could have given VA a run for his money..lol..but Simpson is the only guy who has proven that he can win. Richt should start listening to him before he makes a decisions about who plays. But Simpson is a defensive guy so we need to bring in a OC. As of now I see no difference between Richt and Goldilox...we are on that same road.

CGNC

LOL! We have PMR smoking on a bong and eating empanadas. We are a very funny bunch.

GO Canespace- is what SHE said

CGNC

"Stop buying into the whole UM is broke because it's a a private school narrative."

Agreed WWIN. Everyone (fans of other schools) thinks people are out panhandling for money at UM and that the weightroom has picnic benches. IMO the school likes it that way so they can continue to send emails asking for more money. As a private school they are not required to divulge $$$.

VA Cane


SHORT LEASH? How many years do they get while getting it right from the bong smoker?

When I was young.....long time ago boss...my weapon of choice was a nice bowl....easily cleaned in a little bowl of alcohol, easy for quick hits.
I think CMR is a bowl guy....bongs spill easy, smell from first hit and get dirty...harder to clean!

None the less....cat is smoking something strong from something....maybe he's a Bambu paper guy.....and the mans thinking is ....clouded!!!!!

This has turned out to be a horrible decision by BOT and AD....we are going nowhere soon....the damn 12% bus is flying alright....in reverse!!!!

Aerocane

Last thing
Now that manny has head coach experience, let’s fire richt and bring him back as head coach - he can bring in a OC/qb coach and a OL coach and leave everything else alone and I’d be Very happy!
Lol

AeroCane

I think BJ made the easy move (but very wrong) by hiring richt! Now I think richt did the same thing - we should of brought in another young, aggressive DC; I think Banda could be good but he will Never get a recruit that the big dogs want (unless they are coming to the U no matter what); I do think our D will still be aggressive and good, but again, same thing Dude said ‘currently we have a mid tier mentality’ and that’s all we are - an average team at best with richt. I said it after the FSU game, this was our year to crush them and with richt, we almost lost. Time to move on but that is only wishful thinking!

AeroCane

PS if we used Jett Thomas correctly, he’d still be on the team!
If we used lingard correctly, he would of been practicing differently (ie with the firsts) and who knows maybe he doesn’t get injured (maybe he does but my point is made)

AeroCane

Beer - correct!

AeroCane

Go - Mullen is in his first year!
Richt in his 3rd
No excuses - we have a bad, non passionate coach and yes, he will figure out a way to lose 3,4 or 5 games next year in his freaking 4th year!
I hate the gators, but Mullins is a better coach than richt if not for the reason that there aren’t many coaches worse than richt!
AND, he effing thinks his offense works lol; offense can be pretty easy with our talent IF we used it correctly and used the right players (ie lingard, cam, Pope, Hightower rather than dee ‘dropems’ wiggins, deejay (who I love butbis not near the talent of lingard, etc)

thirstybuzzardcane

Hmmmmmmmm!

https://twitter.com/khris_a1/status/1073754434449170432?s=19

TJL

Mullen is going to coach circles around these 2 DC clowns Richt promoted opening game next year--vault it

BEERicane

I would take literally any other OC over Richt. He is the worst. Just a stubborn ass who thinks, nay, believes in something despite the mountain of evidence what he believes doesn’t work. Get any other OC or start the buyout process. Absolutely the worst coach in college. Bring back Golden!

Go Canes!!

We came out flat after back to bacl huge games but outscored Pitt 30-0 to end the game. That same Pitt QB threw a pick six to Jaquan and they had about one first down from mid 3rd quarter on.

Funny when The Turds were down 21-3 and came back to beat a crap Vanderbilt team this year you called it great coaching by Mullen. But when we do it our coaches are being exposed.

Keep talking down at us. You always know more than we do.

sugarcane

wanted Manny. I thought he do what he did.

Posted by: His Majesty The Dude on High | December 15, 2018 at 01:32 AM

That's what she said

Go Canes!!

Now do the second half.

WWIN

Post the stats of those QBs. Clemson and Wisconsin’s QBs had good games, the rest were garbage.

Posted by: Go Canes!! | December 15, 2018 at 01:27 AM

Kurt Benkert was brilliant for Virginia (6-5, 3-4), completing 28 of 37 passes for 384 yards and four touchdowns.

The game started at noon, and it wasn't until 2:21 p.m. that Benkert took aim at a receiver and missed. He started 18 for 19 for 288 yards and four touchdowns in a little over a half, the only incompletion in that span being an intentional one -- he threw the ball away to avoid what would have been a sack by Miami's Chad Thomas.

http://www.espn.com/college-football/recap?gameId=400937525
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Yeah this was definitely garbage... and how good do you think Benkert was? 🤣🤣🤣

And this was at HardRock!

Go Canes!!

His Majesty The Dude on High

Im not even sure how good Manny was. I liked him... but he couldnt croot very well and the Coastal is so trash its hard to tell, but at least he took care of the Coastal, got our swag back on D. This was the perfect time to make a power move, but Miami is has a mid tier team mentality but croots at a top 25 level.

WWIN

Did anybody want Diaz before Richt brought him here? NO! There was a reason why... just like there was a reason why Richt got fired
